Small CPAP wipes
#1
I use CPAP wipes to clean my nasal pillow. They come in 62/canister. I only need 1/3 or 1/4 of the wipe. I've been cutting them so the canister lasts 4 months instead of 2 months.

Does anyone know of small CPAP wipes, that come in 150 or 200? It would be nice not to have to cut every morning.

Am I missing something, do people use the wipes to clean things other than the nasal pillow?

I actually stopped buying them. I just wash my nasal pillow with dawn liquid every morning, rinse, shake out moisture, and let air dry. Much cheaper!

Also more eco friendly, less waste. Wipes are a convince product only, nothing special about them except the almost extortionist price of the active ingredients.

I use Pampers Baby Wipes, $2.37 for dispenser box of 72. No chemicals, just a trace of aloe which I find actually helps the mask cushion surface stay put better.

I use a squirt of hand sanitizer and a kleenix. removes the facial oils.

been doing it for years, no adverse affects, ever since I determined, after the first purchase of 'cpap wipes', that most 'cpap products' were just milking desperate people for money.

I still use the CPAP wipes - call me lazy, but after cleaning my mask cushions, I clean my face. Helps tremendously with oily skin. There are cheaper variants on the same thing available via Amazon.
